The petition is about the asylum of Nelly Gelves and is from the people of North East Lincolnshire, including Great Grimsby.

The petition states:

The petition of residents of North East Lincolnshire,

Declares that the situation in Venezuela is desperate and inhumane;
further that it would be wrong for an asylum seeker of 73 years old to be returned to political and religious repression in a country where she has practically no access to money, food and basic medicines.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to support the Asylum and Humanitarian Protection of Nelly Gelves in the UK to allow her to continue to live with her family.

And the petitioners remain, etc.
